This small tasty mushroom normally grows in big groups.
They are hard to find but once you found one just look around and discover many more.

Cantharellus tubaeformis

Common Name: Funnel Chanterelle, Yellow foot

Cap 2-4 cm broad, at first convex, then depressed, sometimes hollow in the center, trumpet-shaped; margin incurved, wavy; surface dry, brown to yellowish-brown, with fine dark scales; flesh thin, yellowish-brown; odor and taste mild.

Gills buff-brown, lighter than cap, edges blunt, decurrent, widely separated, with cross-veins.

Stipe 2.5-7.0 cm long, 0.5-1.0 cm thick, buff-brown, smooth, equal, flattened to longitudinally grooved, sometimes hollow.

Spores 8-12 x 5-8 Ám, smooth, elliptical. Spores pale buff to white in deposit.

Scattered to clustered on soil, moss, and rotten wood in conifer woods during mid-winter.

Edible and excellent.

This diminutive member of the chanterelle clan is recognized by a yellowish-brown, trumpet-shaped, sometimes hollow fruiting body, and blunt-edged widely spaced gills. Cantharellus tubaeformis appears well after the start of the mushroom season

Hi Shir, what a super shot of these edible mushrooms. I wouldn't think of eating them, as they don't look anything like the real mushrooms that I buy to eat!
Excellent POV, being level on the ground with them. Very well captured, thank you.

What a nice composition for this little mushrooms. Colors, environment and sharpness are good. I am surprised by dark colors of these "Cantharellus tubaeformis", here they are more yellow... Did you see my "Gomphidius glutinosus" edible also ?
Thanks for sharing Shir

HI Shir,
Nice shot with these mushrooms all in a row.
I am glad you left the surroundings in so I can see where it grows.

One of your best shots so far on TN I think. Ilove the POV and DOF. Excellent composition and nice detail. I like the contrast between the warm browns and the green moss. Very well done IMO (in my opinion).

Nice shot, these mushrooms tend to grow in the Finish forests under the protection of the leafy canopy. They grow in groups and when you pick them you should leave the roots so someone else as well as you can enjoy them in a soup.

Cheers Chris & Xime


Nice picture. Like the POV, so close to the ground. Make them look much bigger than they actually are.
Thanks for sharing
